Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

This is the story of Ahmed’s heart. Ahmed was a Palestinian boy who lived in Jenin in the West Bank. In November, 2005, the 12-year old Ahmed was shot by an Israeli sniper. Ahmed’s parents decided to donate their son’s heart to Israel. The film is also about Samah, the Israeli girl who now lives with Ahmed’s heart. Ahmed’s parents says that the donation was made in the spirit of ‘Salam’ (peace) with Israel and that their son lives on through this girl. A gift can transform and ”drill a hole in the wall”, when there is someone on the other side willing to receive that gift. Read more: http://this.is/Parsberg

Why don't they just pack their things and move back to africa where they arabs and jews belong and leave the middle east alone!

Subject: drilling a hole in the wall
A wall starts in our minds before we build it on the ground. With this film I want to draw attention to the fact that we, the ordinary people, have the power to create channels for connecting with others. To me, these two families act in a way that illuminates how conflicts can be solved; how a gift can transform and ”drill a hole in the wall”, when there is someone on the other side willing to receive that gift./cecilia
